Lion of Trafalgar in marble, 1846.

Each of the four lions are pretty much identical except for slight differences in their mane and head, as they sit at the foot of Nelsons column, Trafalgar square, London.

And while these creatures don't have official names, they have acquired the nickname 'The Landseer Lions' after the man who sculpted them.

It’s said that each of these 7-ton statues, made from bronze captured from French and Spanish ships at the battle of Trafalgar, will awaken if Big Ben ever chimed 13 times… and that’s not even the weirdest secret that these big cats hold in their paws.

The lions were fraught by complete incompetence from design through planning, to manufacture, to government scandal, before they were completed and installed years after the column was completed.

Size.

12 cm tall x 25 cm wide x 9 cm deep.
